your experience

Away from the confines of the city, this half-day river tubing adventure promises an experience that is fun, exciting and safe. Drift lazily on giant inflatable tubes through the calm waters of the Mulgrave River or through the Behana Gorge. A part of the catchment system for Queensland’s highest mountains, the river is surrounded by a rainforest. You will enjoy this stunning scenery with tropical vegetation as far as the eye can see as you navigate the small rapids.

Two professional guides will fully supervise you at all times to ensure your comfort and safety. Suitable for all experience levels, this activity requires no prior first-hand knowledge.
